Where am I going?

"Ladakh" in the Farsi transliteration of the Tibetan La-dvags; which means ("Land of High Passes") on the borderland of extreme Pakistan and China that connected the Ancient Silk trade route. Ladakh has been described as 'The Mysterious Land of the Mystic Lamas', 'The Broken Moonland', or 'The Last Shangri-La' for its unique landscape and exquisite culture.

One sees no horizon here but only mountain peaks soaring up to 5 to 6 km. In the prehistoric period Ladakh formed a Great Lake. Even at present the region has some of the largest and most beautiful lakes, Pangong and the Tsomoriri lakes. The walls of dramatic mountains that hem in Ladakh make for an unforgettable landscape, but be aware that road access requires crossing high passes, which close from around October to May (or longer when snows are heavy).

It is a repository of myriad cultural and religious influences from Tibet, Indian subcontinent and Central Asia.

How do I ride in tough terrains?

Please be in speed limit for your adventurous ride and for your better tomorrow. Riding in Ladakh is totally different as compared to other parts of the world. You will find a small layer of sand over the metalled roads in Ladakh everywhere, which weakens the grips and may cause accidents. Follow the instructions by the trip leader always -
